The Potting Shed!


Today I'd like to share with you a card I made my Husband for his Birthday last week. I was lucky to win some digi images from this wonderful company they have a huge selection to choose from, infact I got quite spoilt for choice. As it's hard to make a card for a guy I was so chuffed to find a HUGE selection of images covering their hobbies in different styles of chaps Lol.

Here is mine using Dads-shed-Alf

Isn't he wonderful leaning on the door!  My hubby is thinking of purchasing a shed to go hide in when he wants some space Lol.
The card is my normal 6x6 bright white and on to that I have added this paper which I have been hiding in my stash for about 15 years! cause I didn't know what to do with it. It has all male terms on it in many fonts and in different directions.
I coloured the image in with my Promarkers and Copics for the face. I mounted the coloured in image on to some pear coloured card and used postage stamp scissors around the edge (hubby is a postman). I grabbed some kraft card and cut strips and inked the edges and made a similar design to the shed make-up and placed that in the center of the card adding the bling blue banner mid way.
I cut out the "perfect" and cogs and dotted those around. The Happy Birthday has two screw brads on each end and the "boys will be boys" has been added using foam pads.

Thanks for stopping by today, leave a word or two as its nice to see who came.

I'm sharing this card over at a few other challenges



  1. Cute! This is just right for our current "Yo Dude" challenge at Shopping Our Stash-- thanks for joining! My husband built me a shed a couple years ago and it has been very good for our marriage-- he can have the house and I'll go out to my crafting supplies! See, now you can have the house and he can go out to the shed!!! Stop by SOS more often! We have new challenges every Tuesday.
